Where and how do I reserve a Study Room?
Temporary Study Room Reservations Policies (during the COVID-19 pandemic) are posted at https://www.stcl.edu/library/visitor-info/study-room-reservation-policy-2/. Please note that reservations are not available during scheduled cleaning times at the end of each weekday evening. The link to reserve a study room is in the top portlet under the Library tab in STANLEY. Study rooms that are currently assigned to a recent graduate studying for the bar are not available for use. These rooms are marked with a sign and are unavailable in the reservation system. Social distancing and facial coverings must be worn in any study room with more than one person occupying it.
Can I eat in the Library?
Students may eat in the Library if alone in a study room. The Library policy is that cold food and snacks may be consumed in the study rooms. Hot/smelly food should not be eaten in the Library. See https://www.stcl.edu/library/visitor-info/.
Are there seating restrictions in the Library?
Social distancing must be observed in the Library. Generally, students can sit where they choose as long as they are observing the social distancing and facial covering guidelines.
Are library materials being cleaned after each use?
The Library is following the generally accepted practice of placing circulated materials in quarantine for three days. The quarantine will be applied to reserve materials as well as other returned items. Print reserve materials that are available electronically will not circulate. As there is no practical way to track materials on the open shelves, please treat these materials as if someone has touched them recently. Don’t touch your face and wash your hands.
I need access to a book that is only available in print and I am an online only student. How do I access the material?
Please contact the Reference Desk with your request. Within the restrictions of copyright, the Library will scan and email sections of print books. Curbside pick-up or pick-up at the Security Desk is available for online only students for books that usually circulate outside the Library. In appropriate circumstances, books can be mailed to online only students.
